Start! for Chrome
Access your favourite parts of the internet with the Start! extension for Chrome

Start! is a an extension for Chrome that provides you with an all new start page. As well as housing links to your favourite web sites for easy access, the start page also displays news feeds and can be customised with a background image of your choice. Start! makes it quick and easy to get to the sites you need as well as keeping up to date with all of the latest news and blog posts.

The upper portion of the Start! page is home to your favourite web sites, while a bar in the lower half is used to house web apps you may have opted to install. The news feed section can be used to display information from news web sites and blogs but you can also use a variety of online services to consolidate a number of feeds into one

The background image of the page can be customised by click the Change Background link at the bottom of the page and this will pull in images that have been uploaded to Flickr. You can also use the URL link to choose a specific image of your own online.

Once set up, you can use Start! in a couple of ways. The first option is to use it as your start page so it will appear every time you launch Chrome, but you can also add it to a pinned tab. This means that your start page is always available no matter how many other tabs you have open.

Verdict:

Start! is a nice idea but it can get messy when a large selection of bookmarks are added.

Unreal Engine 4.8

Free Full Commercial Software

Unreal Engine is Epic Games' game engine, a powerful suite of tools for developing anything from basic 2D games to professional RPGs, first person shooters and whatever else you like.

Wide standards support - DirectX, OpenGL, JavaScript/ WebGL - means your projects can be targeted to almost any platform: consoles, iOS, Android, Windows, OS X, Linux, HTML5 browsers and more.

There's a vast amount to learn, of course, and that's even before you start building your game. But there's plenty of documentation, tutorials, demos and sample projects to point you in the right direction.

The package is now entirely free, too - no annoying limitations, nag screens or anything else. Epic now only requires that you pay a 5% royalty after the first $3,000 of revenue per product per quarter. And even then, you "pay no royalty for film projects, contracting and consulting projects such as architecture, simulation and visualization."

8.48 brings:
    - Optimized grass rendering and procedural foliage system preview
    - Plugins available in Marketplace
    - Improved accuracy for motion blur
    - New Tone Mapper
    - Support for all the latest VR hardware including Oculus Rift, Samsung Gear VR, Steam VR and HTC Vive, Leap Motion, and Sony's Project Morpheus for PlayStation 4
    - "Scrubbable" network replays with rewind support and live time scrubbing
    - Visualize the memory footprint of game assets in an interactive tree map UI
